Jenny’s Winter Wedding

Everything was picture perfect down in historic Winchester. The day finally came to see my baby sister tie the knot. She was gorgeous in a custom made dress that floated down the aisle. Her best friends in a deep winter green all by her side. The groom glowing and so handsome. Minus a little disruption during the ceremony by a 2 year old who shall remain nameless (but had to be kindly removed) everything went smoothly. Of course it’ll be a while before we get the amazing photos from photographer Katharine but thanks to social media we get to quickly reflect on one of our family’s happiest days yet.

One of Katharine’s preliminary photos!

Our buddy James Cornwell and crew did an amazing job with hair and make-up!

There was an awesome photo booth

As a bridesmaids gift.. Jenny gave us all fur stoles!

We’ve been looking forward to this weekend for so long. The wedding is taking place in beautiful historic Winchester. It’s winter themed and know it’s gonna be beautiful.
In her black tie Adora did great at the rehearsal.

I thought the gold chair place card holders were the cutest thing!

More pictures form the big day to come! Off we go!


And soon she’ll be Mrs.

I can’t believe it. My baby sister Jenny is finally getting married! We gathered to toast the bride-to-be at one of our favorite places.. Paradise Springs Winery. It was a perfect Fall day to raise a glass for our favorite cheer coach. There was live music, wine and cheese to feed an army and just wonderful spirits all around! Congratulations Jenny.. we can’t wait to watch you walk down the aisle. CHEERS TO YOU!

Bad bride

I got married more than 4 years ago. I still haven’t gotten my wedding albums. I have felt tremendous guilt because my husband keeps asking me… when are they coming. I recently contacted my wedding photographer about getting them done.. after all they are paid for. I figure it will take some time considering there were nearly 3,000 photos taken that day. SO I went ahead and just slapped one together online. How times have changed. When I got married in 2008… the photo book was just kicking off. Next thing you know we’ll have brides popping out of cakes in 3-D.Well, let’s hope not. That could be borderline tacky.

Hopefully this below will suffice til the real deal arrives. Pretty cool that you can make books now and share them on social platforms.

Best friend’s Ranch Wedding

There’s the most charming little town outside San Antonio called Boerne. I was there for one of my best friends from college wedding! Lassos, hay, swine, longhorns, white lights… The celebration of Amy & Ken was boot kickin’ amazing! Oh a great highlight was when Amy’s bear of a doggy Charlie (who was in the wedding party) went crazy after the groom kissed his bride!

Down south and celebrating

There’s nothing like getting together with old pals to celebrate a big milestone. One of my BFF’s from my reporting days in South Carolina is going to be saying “I do” this summer. What better place to get to know the “new man” than in the place where so many of her great friendships and memories were made. We gathered in Columbia South Carolina to celebrate Heather and Joe! A nice surprise, Redskin Kedric Golston and kids were there. He’s from the area and was visiting family. He’s also good friends with one of our hosts so that’s how that all came full circle. Old friends and new friends… in the good ole’ spirit of the south everyone was welcomed!

The happy couple!

Susan-Elizabeth, Sarah, Angie and HB

My berry cute baby!

Kedric… we won’t hold that shirt against you

Someone caught stealing the appetizers!
